TheAquarium Online - Now with SlideCasting (Feeback Wanted!)

ALT DESCR

I've added SlideCasting to the recordings of the TheAquarium Online shows. The first 3 presentations are from last week's OpenSSO Overview, Adoption and Roadmap presentation; see, for example, the OpenSSO Roadmap by Sidharth Mishra.

SlideShare.Net provides a nice tool to create these SlideCasts but every format adds to the time I spend on this, so I am considering dropping a format or two. Please consider visiting this Doodle Poll to vote for your favorite formats.

Quick Report on GlassFish Webinars in Portuguese, Chinese and Japanese

ALT DESCR

A quick report on today's Special Webinars: we decided to postpone the Portuguese version for the week of March 1st (next week is Carnival and we can't compete with it), but the Japanese and the Chinese webinars went very well.

We had 144 viewers for the Japanese webinar, with a maximum of 44 attendees at a given time, while the Chinese max was 26 but the total of viewers was 153. Plenty of questions and online chatting, and we all decided we will do it again.

I still need to schedule my spanish presentation... :-(
